    Parents who both play in band(s) - how do you do it?

    This question is really directed at "band families". You know, two people both play in band(s) and suddenly there's an addition to the family and life is never the same again (in a good way!). We both play in the same band. The monster is nearly three months old, and highly unlikely to lie...

    Holding a Bass Trombone!

    I'm learning bass trombone just now - well trying to! The main problem I'm experiencing at the moment is holding the thing. Is it acceptable to rest it on the shoulder or should the left hand bear all the weight? I'm finding that my thumb is taking most of the weight and so I can't hold it for...

    Never stop playing!

    If any of you have ever stopped playing for more than a few weeks you'll know where I'm coming from... I hadn't touched my flugel (apart from moving the box from one house to the other) in a couple of years until last Monday. I decided that this was the time to start actually playing the thing...

    Hello from Flugelgal

    Hello, I am Flugelgal-the-not-so-quiet. Funnily enough I play the flugel, although I do play trumpet as well when I can get hold of one. I've not been around here much for a while, due to various reasons... <mumble>World of Warcraft</mumble> However, I joined tMP in December 2003 from Sunny...

    Help! I'm Outta Bru!

    Help! I'm currently savouring the last glass of that lovely ice cold Irn Bru from the fridge. I haven't found somewhere to get it in Dublin yet so I don't know what I'm going to do! I can't turn to chocolate since I've given it up for a couple of months (moment of madness... ). If anyone out...

    Fodens in Armagh

    Last night I had the pleasure of listening to Fodens in the Market Place Theatre in Armagh, Northern Ireland. After a long drive through nasty traffic and a couple of "detours" (my map isn't detailed enough) I finally made it to the theatre to collect my ticket. I really enjoyed this concert -...

    A Bizarre Day!

    I've seen a few bizarre things today so I thought I would share them with you! I was heading into Dublin City Centre for my "start a new job on Monday" hairdo, and I crossed onto the central reservation on O'Connell St. I'm sure you can imagine how surprised I was to see 4 people playing table...

    Thank You to Granite City Brass

    Many thanks from me to Granite City Brass for allowing me to join them for the last 11 months. I think the highlight of my time was last Saturday’s contest, when we played a complete programme of brand new Darrol Barry music and did very well indeed. Special thanks go to Moira for being so good...
